    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pearson (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    5 individual interviews via video conference over the course of 2 months. Throughout the entire process I had to consistently follow up with them. Sometimes getting no response. With each interview I was told I was a top candidate, yet I felt left in the dark during the process.

    When I got the rejection letter, it was addressed to another candidate. Instead of sending an apology, I just received another generic email with my name.

    It would have been nice to get a call considering I dedicated a lot of time to completing the interview process.

    Interview

    I was contacted by their recruiter via email to pick some phone screen times. I sent them some times, but I never heard back from them including 3 follow up emails. I refuse to reapply to this company since they aren't able to do a simple follow up with a candidate.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pearson (Chandler, AZ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Horrible interview process.. Very slow.. went through a series of phone screens.. about a week apart. I talked to about 3 employees within the group I was interviewing with. First interview with Director went very well. Got a call for the second interview with a lead within the team. That one went very well.. I thought I was on my way for an on-site interview.. Recruiter called me back right after the interview and said they have 1 more phone screen with a development engineer within the group..The interview was set up about a week later.. I got the phone call and believe it or not this person could not speak a word of English.. This person was asking me questions and every single answer I gave was , can you repeat the question because I don't understand what you are asking... It was so bad that I thought it was a joke.. At one point in the interview I actually told this person , I am having trouble understanding what you are asking me, and I think he got offended.. It was a terrible experience and I wasn't surprised that I didn't get a phone call back...
